Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Ocean Pines - Live Laugh & Love At The Beach

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 7

We invite you to enjoy our 3 bedroom, 2 bath home that is easy to find in the North Gate of Ocean Pines, just a 5 minute drive to the beach. 2016 will be our 4th summer listing this home as a rental. We are continually upgrading this home! Cleaning is now included and we signed on w/ a NEW HOUSEKEEPING COMPANY!! New for 2016 season: new TV in master BR, new shower insert & spicket hardware in master bath, new tub/shower/and spicket hardware in main bath. New dining table in enclosed porch, new grill late summer '15. Previous upgrades: New curtains, new fixtures, new tile in bathroom, new sliding glass doors in sunroom, refinished deck w/ new vinyl railings, new screening, new doors in screened in porch and staircases & more. New windows throughout the house: Spring 2015! We have central air, & ceiling fans in each room except the kids' BR and kitchen. Next is a new kitchen, aiming for 2017 season!

*Now open and available for bookings ALL YEAR, just ask*

There is plenty of outdoor living space: an enclosed side-porch, & a front deck & back deck, yard w/ horseshoe pits, and fire pit. We we still have some updating to do, like a kitchen remodel (coming soon), but the kitchen is fully functional and clean.....each year we are continuing w/ improvements. We have poured our heart and soul into this home and are building a clientele that keeps coming back! *New for 2016 season: CLEANING IS INCLUDED in the rental fee. We ask that you dispose of your food & trash and put everything back where you found it, and the housekeeper will then do a cleaning between weekly guests. Just please leave the home in good condition!

No pets please, thanks!

Outside: a firepit, charcoal grill, horse shoe pit, hose, table for 6 on back deck, Adirondack chairs & other seating & beach parking passes for Ocean Pines beach club & 4 Beach Club pool passes*, along w/ beach chairs. Umbrellas are available for rent at beach.

Inside: fully functional kitchen w/ toaster oven, coffeemaker, microwave, dishwasher, garbage disposal, blender, pots & pans and dinnerware etc.

Washer/dryer, master BR w/ queen bed and pack-n-play, 2nd BR w/ full bed, 3rd BR w/ full under twin bunk bed. Toys, 3 TV's, PlayStation 2 w/ games, DVD/VCR combo, games, stroller. CABLE TV & INTERNET.

*Children under 5 get in free w/ family, ea. additional person can pay cash at the door for the pool at the beach. For use of the other 4 community pools, you may pay cash at the door or you may purchase re loadable pool cards at Sports Core pool or OPA bldg. Then it can be reloaded at the Ocean Pines admin. bldg (at 239 Ocean Parkway) or the indoor (aka 'Sports Core' pool). The OP family summer pool membership is 'non-transferable' and photo id is required, so we could not go that route & provide this for vacationers at our home regretfully. Finally, once you pay for the pool for the day, keep your receipt and you may use any of the pools at OP. And remember use of the pool by the beach is included!

Ocean Pines community includes access to 5 pools (1 indoor that is open all year) *please see note under 'amenities' section, golf, tennis, parks, walking trails, play areas, ballfield. We are 1/2 hr. from the minor league baseball stadium: The Delmarva Shorebirds in Salisbury, MD. Also, close to outlet shopping, gas stations & many restaurants and large chain stores like: Walmart & Home Depot.

To look at the Ocean Pines community map: go to ocean pines. org & the home page has an amenities 'quick link' that has a 'community map to the clubs & pools' link listed. Click on that link to see OP community, pool locations etc. Also, we have a paper map and activity booklets in the home as well.

See calendar for availability!

*Furniture changes this year: New kitchen table and chairs, put enclosed porch furniture on back deck b/c it was too bulky for the enclosed porch area, replacing the picnic table and chairs. We got a new small pub table w/ 2 chairs for the enclosed porch and the Adirondack chairs are available to set up in there as well. Will add to enclosed porch furniture for 2016.

Good value. Thanks for pool/beach passes!!

  • 3 of 5

We had a great experience with the owner, communication was prompt and helpful. The rental is in a very convenient location, but honestly felt a little smaller than the pictures and reviews made it sound to our family of five. I shared with Kathy that some of the outdoor patio space needed a little TLC and she has told me she is already taking care of it.

Overall, we had a nice experience, but would have liked to see a few things upgraded. For the price, it is a pretty good deal.

Can't beat the pool passes/beach house access. We went every day, kids loved being able to bounce back and forth from the beach to the ocean and then back home to escape the traffic at the beach.

Owner's Response: Hello, Thanks for the review! Since this tenant stayed at the home, we have gotten a new washer/dryer b/c we had had it repaired and the repair only lasted a couple of months, so we replaced it 8/4/16, although it was still working at the time of replacement (a few people reported very small burn holes on their clothes after using the dryer). We got new cushions for the deck table and moved it into the enclosed porch, b/c the shady/pollen/leafy atmosphere makes it impossible to keep the outdoor furniture clean at all times. We moved the furniture w/ no cushions to the back deck. We make it clear that our home is a 'work in progress' in the detail and price it accordingly. The upgrades we are considering for this season (fall '16- spring '17) are: kitchen remodel and new flooring. We will be touching up the deck stain and typical home-maintenance in the off-season as well. We think our home is special b/c we have 2 living spaces for family members who want to divide up a little bit, and we have the front deck, side enclosed porch and back deck and fire-pit. I hope this helps!

This house was a perfect spot for a get away. Plenty of room for a family of four. Everything was very clean and well kept. Kathy, the owner, was a pleasure to deal with. Overall it was a great choice for my family.

Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

I have always stayed Ocean Front in a Hotel Room...they were always very convenient with access to the Beach, but it was also cramped quarters...

With that being said...I can now say, that I would highly recommend this House, as the best way to spend a Beach Vacation!!!

The House is extremely well laid out for a Family Vacation experience! There was a Central Kitchen area with a Large table for seating for everyone, and the Freezer kept up with the Ice Making needs of everyone! There are also Two separate distinct Living Rooms, so if you would desire to watch different TV shows, or Rent Movies, you can hang out in which ever Living Room you prefer! There is a nice screened room with Bistro Tables for evening enjoyment, and protection from any insects, and there are Decks on the Front of the House, and a secluded deck at the rear of the house. We used the Fire pit on a couple of evenings too, as there was firewood available for our use. The Bedrooms, and Bathrooms were also quite nice!

The absolute BEST part of this Rental is the Private Parking Pass, and the Four Passes for the Ocean Pines Beach Club! What a nice experience! Use it everyday!!! It is a quick trip over the Route 90 Bridge into Ocean City...takes about 8 Minutes...turn right and go down to 49th street, and hang a "U" ey, and then you turn into your Private Parking Lot at the Beach Club. Its easy Parking, an easy walk to the Beach or the Pool, and there are Bathrooms, a Bar, and a Deck to sit on, and occasional Live Music...this was so much better than driving to the Inlet at OC!

Fantastic home to enjoy week family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect fit for me and four teenage girls. Two family rooms which worked out fabulous. Plenty of sleeping space, big kitchen table for all of us to fit and most of all, awesome back yard with fire pit to hang out. Loved it!!

Very clean house, sleeps many. It was great for myself and a friend and both of our kids. It was nicely decorated, and the drive to the beach wasn't bad at all.
